Hi Wolf, first off welcome to the site! The manuals are only from JD and you have to buy it. Maybe off Ebay? The Deck is a few pins under neath. The lift arms are to the back and you remove the pins in front of it. I think it is 2 pins from front arms from front axle. Then two pins from rear arms. I think the only other thing is the belt from PTO. Not to hard on STX's series. Hope this helps!
